I tried to help you make a free $79 last month...
I opened the books on my Retirement Trader service... offered a "crash course" in options trading... and then published a free trade that anyone could make – no matter how hesitant you were about options.
This one trade wasn't going to make you rich. But that wasn't the point...
The point was to encourage you to roll up your sleeves and make a trade that could open up a whole new world of "trading for income" in retirement... for the low, low price of free.
Here's what happened...
The covered-call trade we made was in semiconductor giant Intel (INTC).
Anyone with $3,600 to invest could have made this trade (options contracts trade in blocks of 100 shares). And anyone who did make this trade is solidly in the green. We closed it out in my Retirement Trader service three weeks later for a 2.2% profit.
That might not sound like a lot at first glance... But on an annualized basis – what you'd receive if you could put this trade on again and again – it's a 33.6% gain.
That's my No. 1 goal in Retirement Trader.
To put on trade after trade... and rack up win after win... to help you boost your income in retirement. We've collected this safe and steady income for seven years now. And we've closed winning positions more than 94% of the time.
This is the single most powerful investing strategy that I can teach you.
Now, I know that options trading can seem overwhelming if you've never done it.
It doesn't help that so-called "options pros" like to throw around terms like delta, gamma, and so on. And believe me, you don't have to understand them to trade options the way that we do.
In fact, you can make big gains for years by mastering just one simple strategy.
I know because that's exactly what I've done.
When I started with options 30 years ago, I mastered just one type of trade. And I've used it over and over again, for years and years to generate income and to stuff my portfolio with shares of great stocks for less than what everybody else was paying.
Amazingly, the income from the strategy has covered many of my living expenses. And even provided play money at times when I wasn't working... like during medical school.
It's allowed me freedom and peace of mind to focus on my true passions in life.
Here's the strategy: since my earliest days in Wall Street, I've been selling covered calls for income on my favorite stocks – like this free Intel trade from last month.
With our strategy, we profit in a bull market... Stocks go up, and our covered-call trades get exercised and we sell our shares for maximum projected returns.
That's what happened if you "tested the waters" with this Intel trade...
- If you put on this trade, you've made at least $79 (using the minimum position size) if you closed it out early. (We did so in my Retirement Trader service because we could take most of our gains off the table early. You can see that by looking at our annualized gain figure of 33.6%.)
- And if you're still holding this covered-call trade, you'll make $126 as long as Intel shares stay above $37 on November 17. (That'd be good for an annualized gain of 21%.)
But this is just one way that we profit...
We also profit when stocks remain flat or even fall a bit.
I'm sure you're well aware that this is one of the longest bull markets in history. I know that many folks are getting more and more nervous.
I can't predict when the next bear market will hit. Nobody can.
That's why I position my portfolio to be ready for anything. And by collecting cash up front – like we do when we trade for income in Retirement Trader – you can reduce your risk compared with simply buying stocks outright. And your gains can be exceptional.
Earlier this month, subscriber Elaine M. wrote in to our Retirement Millionaire Daily feedback line...
My first newsletter, and my first experience with options, was Doc's Retirement Trader. I started with $50,000 about three years ago. My account today is worth $250,000. I made a lot of mistakes in the beginning by following Doc's options trade, but made zealous decisions to make even more money by writing contracts for higher premiums – thus buying myself more risk. But because it was Doc and his incredible research, even the assignments were good bets – even at the price I paid – because he has always made recommendations on really solid companies.
Eventually I learned to follow Doc's advice more closely. I have learned so much. Last month my YTD return was 48%. This month (mostly because of Apple lagging a bit) my YTD was 40%.
This is the kind of e-mail that keeps me writing my newsletters.
Elaine, I'm glad that you've been making a lot of money with our strategy. Thanks for stepping out of your comfort zone and taking control of your wealth and retirement. I can't tell you how much it means to us that our efforts here are rewarding you.
For the rest of you... here's my offer:
I don't have any sort of fancy video or presentation for you to watch. This is a take-it-or-leave it kind of deal. The link above goes to an order page. It's as dead-simple as you can get.
That's how confident I am in this strategy.
When you give it a try, I know you'll earn more income every month for your retirement – that's how options work.
That doesn't mean we won't ever have a trade that goes down. We will. But we're also capable of trading our way back into a winning position. Our current streak is 106 winning trades.
Hitting 100 trades in a row is a significant milestone in the trading world...
And it's not the first time for us. Subscribers may remember that we did this once before.
Our previous streak started in 2010 and ended in October 2013. We made it all the way to 136 consecutive winning trades before we booked our first loss.
After that, most of us felt a similar streak couldn't happen again... that it was impossible...
Well, it is happening again. We've broken 100, and we're ready to compete with our previous total of 136.
It's not as simple as selecting the right stocks. Trades don't always go in our favor. Sometimes, we have to make multiple adjustments to earn our profits. It requires discipline and patience. But it's better than losing money.
We've been so successful over the years because of that discipline. It's also because we sell options on high-quality stocks that we'd love to own.
So, again... here's my offer: I'd like for you to start making more money in retirement, starting this Friday when our next Retirement Trader issue comes out.

Here's to our health, wealth, and a great retirement,
